History

Serenade of the Seas is a Radiance class cruise ship that is owned and operated by Royal Caribbean International cruise line. She was built at Meyer Werft yard in Papenburg, Germany and is registered in Nassau, Bahamas. She completed her maiden voyage on 25 August 2003. Other ships in the Radiance class include Jewel of the Seas, Brilliance of the Seas and Radiance of the Seas.

Layout

Serenade of the Seas is a gas-turbine vessel. This system produces higher efficient speeds than other cruise ships, and lower emissions than diesel cruise ships, but its drawback is its higher fuel consumption as well as the demand for higher quality fuel. She is 294 metres (965 ft) long, 32.3 metres (106 ft) wide, has a 8.5 metres (28 ft) draft, and has a cruising speed of 25 knots (46 km/h; 29 mph). There are 12 passenger decks, serviced by 9 passenger elevators (6 of which are glass and either look over the Centrum atrium or outside the ship through a glass wall). The ship holds 2,490 guests and 891 crew. It is powered by two smokeless gas turbines, each able to produce up to 25.25 MW (33,860 hp) of power. There are a total of 1,055 staterooms aboard, 829 of which are ocean view, 589 of those have balconies.

Homeports

The Serenade of the Seas sails the Caribbean, departing from its home port of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, during the winter months. During the summer months, Serenade of the Seas sails the Baltic Sea leaving from the home ports of Copenhagen, Denmark, or Stockholm, Sweden. Starting in August 2016, Serenade of the Seas started sailing out of Boston, Massachusetts until the beginning of October when the ship relocates back to Florida.
